February 26, 2014 | Vol.54 N.9


Carved from a piece of pine by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a small Italian village, Pinocchio was created as a wooden puppet, but dreamt of becoming a real boy. And that’s when the adventure starts!

Pacific Northwest Ballet is happy to announce the return of its popular Family Matinee Series production of Pinocchio. The classic tale of a puppet who yearns to be a real boy will be presented as a narrated one-act ballet for family audiences. Like PNB’s Family Matinee productions of Snow White and Hansel & Gretel, Pinocchio is conceived and choreographed by Bruce Wells and will feature over 70 students of Pacific Northwest Ballet School in each specially-created, hour-long matinee performance for children and families. (Pinocchio does not feature PNB Company dancers.) Performances also feature pre-show crafts and mini-dance classes for the young and young-at-heart.

Pinocchio runs for four performances only, March 16 through 22. Running time is approximately one hour. Click here for more information.

I hope you can join us!
